Iran is a mountainous country offering fantastic ski pistes as skiing is a popular winter sport in Iran. One of these pistes is called Dizin which is located in the Central Alborz Mountains north of Tehran in about 60 km distance. There are two other fantastic pistes Darband Sar and Shemshak. The resort has a reputation for powdery snow, high altitude (one of the world's 40 highest ski centres) and north facing slopes. Average snow depth is 1.5 meter (5 feet) at the base but doubles on the upper slopes.
